riverdale >> reporter: details are sketchy but here what is we know right now. an unidentified 39-year-old man is dead apparently shot by a prince george's county sheriff deputy who was trying to serve a temporary peace order. now, the peace has been interrupted in this normally quiet neighborhood since then, swarming with crime scene technicians as investigators try to piece together exactly what happened here. we saw one county official remove what appeared to be a bag of evidence from the scene. this alley resulted around 7:30 when the deputy arrived to serve that peace order. it is essentially an order of civil protection involving two unrelated people, pending a court date. >> a female subject allowed the deputy entry into the home. while talking to the female
10:02pm
subject, a male subject appeared at the rear of house with a firearm. the officer dischannelled his weapon striking the suspect. the subject was taken to the hospital where he was pronounced dead. >> reporter: to recap, a prowrnlg sheriff deputy shot a man while trying to serve a peace warrant. neither the dead man nor the deputy has been identified. the sheriff deputy is a ten- year veteran on the forms live in riverdale, karen gray houston, fox 5 news. back to you. now to a news alert out of laurel, maryland. the hunt is on for a man who walked into a wal-mart, demanded cash and shot the store manager. it happened early this morning. the store manager is expected to survive. >> reporter: this can easily be described as a chilling crime. anne arundel county police say
10:03pm
that the nighttime manager at this wal-mart did everything that he was asked to dorks turning over money and walking outside of this parking lot at gunpoint where he was shot for no apparent reason. anne arundel county police are releasing several photos in the hopes that someone will recognize this man and call 911. >> the three photos released by police show what detectives believe is a white male with a slim build, tressed in dark clothing wearing a gray hooded sweatshirt n one picture, he appears to be pulling a shopping cart. >> the call came out about 4:17 in the morning. at that point, he demanded money. received money from the business. it appears he took victim, went out into the parking lot area. gwen, it's little ambiguous at this point as to why or unclear why that happened but the victim was ultimately shot in the upper body. >> reporter: a few minutes later, the fire department received a call for a fire on
10:04pm
shower in a neighborhood adjacent to the shopping center. investigators believe it was used as the getaway car but declined to release the make and model. >> the vehicle was fully engulfed and we are treating this as a suspect vehicle. >> reporter: this wal-mart is open around the clock and it's unclear how many shoppers or employees were inside at the time of the robbery. a spokesperson said that the map who was shot is part of the management team and employees have been given ar access to counselors if they feel the need. >> reporter: police are describing that vehicle that was torched not far from here as a dark colored van. they have not said whether it was stolen. in laurel, paul wagner, fox 5 news. a warning to women in the district. d.c. police need the public's health who are accused of abducting two women. police describe the suspect as
10:05pm
four men in their late teens or early 20s. >> we are concerned. in the span of just under two hours, it looks like we had four assaults and on report his that occurred in this small geographic area that, based upon what we know, could potentially be committed by the same individuals. >> reporter: investigators are looking for a burgundy or red four door vehicle. former cia director david petraeus has agreed to testify before a house intelligence committee on the deadly benghazi attack. he appeared reluctant to testify before congress but pressure made him change in mind. he will testify on friday. today, paula broadwell has had her security clears suspended. jill kelley is the other woman
10:06pm
involved in this story. she is the one who called the fbi. kelley and her husband had a close relationship with the petraeus and that the kelleys are in maiming otherdebt owing more than $2 million on a building they own. the president held his first conference after his election. sex scandal, secret documents and a new secretary of state. >> if the president was expecting a new honeymoon with reporters, that quickly disappeared in the wake of the sex scandal that took down cia director david petraeus. >> i have no evidence from what i have seen that classified information was disclosed that in any way would have had a negative impact on our national security. >> reporter: the scandal has now 'em broiled afghanistan commander general john allen. when asked if the fbi should have revealed the investigation to him in the country prior to the election, the president
10:07pm
withheld judgment. >> it is also possible that, had we been told, then you would be sitting here asking about why are you interfering in a criminal investigation? >> reporter: on the fiscal cliff the country faces at the end of the year, the president insisted he would not extend bush tax cuts for the wealthy but demanded middle class tax cuts get extended now >> i'm confident that parties, folks of good will in both parties can make that happen. what i'm not going to do is to extend bush tax cuts for the wealthiest 2% that we can't afford and, according to economists, will have the least positive impact on our economy. >> reporter: the president grew emotional when asked about republicans who had blasted u.n. ambassador susan rice for her comments opt benghazi attack adding that it would not affect her possible nomination as secretary of state. for them to go after the u.n.
10:08pm
ambassador who had nothing to do with benghazi and was simply making a presentation based on intelligence that she had received and to beesmirch her reputation is outrageous. >> and in the wake of super storm sandy, the president made his most poignant comments yet on his belief in global warming. >> there have been an extraordinarily large number of severe weather events here in north america but also around the globe. and i am a firm believer that climate change is real. that it is impacted by human behavior and carbon emissions. >> president was also asked wednesday if he briefs he has a mandate. the president says he does and thinks that voters had a clear understanding of the two different paths that both he and mitt romney laid out during
10:09pm
campaign. the president added that congress should pay attention to last week's results. in the newsroom, tom fitz gerald, fox 5 news. this is the first press conference he had after being re-elected. before we get to the specific topic, i want to ask you about the president himself. did you think he had a different demeanor or different swagger. >> sean, you are telepathic. you read my mind. i was going to say, he seemed much more relaxed, much more amiable, not the least bit defensive. he has not had a press conference since march, he seemed to enjoy it. he got elected. i think he is still savoring that victory and he seems very comfortable with himself and the press. let's get down to the topics at hand. let's go back and ask about the whole petraeus scandal. the president didn't have a lot
10:10pm
to say about it. do you think he handled it the right way? >> i don't think he could have said anything else. all the stories seemed to change from day-to-day. it would not be, i think, helpful to his own posture for him to weigh in. it's stthe general is going to again -- not again, but on friday. he just wants it see where this is going. >> let me ask you about the big thing. reporters seemed to press him on the attack on benghazi. he was fired up, emotional as tom fitzgerald put it. do you think that the gop unfairly targeted the president and what do you think of his response? >> i never have seen him react like that where he went after lindsey graham and john mccain
10:11pm
who was his opponent four years ago. you know, he said if you have a problem, come after me. and lindsey graham and john mccain did. i think he was right and justified. susan rice is a native washingtonian, went to national cathedral school here. people know her. i think he was absolutely right. she had nothing to do with benghazi but the criticism should have been more at hillary clinton who that's her department, the state department and she was just repeating what was given to her and she was the fall person n this case, i think that was justified. whether or not, because of the controversy, you know, one senator can put a hold on the nomination and they've said that they would. i would be surprised now, just because of the controversy, not because of her qualifications whether he wants a confirmation
10:12pm
donnie brook over susan rice or somebody else who very much wants the job, john kerry, who is responsible for obama's year. he picked him to be the keynote speaker in 2004. >> reporter: the president still has never actually said he was going to nominate susan rice, anyway. so it will be interesting to see how it all plays out. mark, thanks so much for coming in. we always appreciate you being here. a local toll road raising its rates again. find out how much it will cost you to drive, coming up. and maryland's biggest casino making major changes. we are talking about tailgates. it is cold out there right now. a few high cloud. temperatures are head down below 32 degrees in many spots and into the mid-30s i'll let you know what to expect tomorrow and we are looking closely at the weekend, too, coming your way. and george washington university has been tossed off the list of america's best

10:18pm
roulette table. how much have you won? >> 1100 and1102 human dollars. >> why do you like that better? >> because they talk too long to pay you. this is the way to do it. >> >> before getting home on this day, pla dunsen got lucky again, this time to the tune of $3600. maryland live plans to offer both in the future, the current electronic games and as many as 150 tables with human operators on duty. best guess as to when the human table games will arrive, early next year, that depends on statelicensing. for information on the free dealer classes, check on my website, myfoxdc.com. john henrehan, fox 5 news.

10:48pm
chilly here. check out the weather head line because it is a chilly trend that we are on and we're going to continue to follow here for the next several days. average high about 59 degrees. we were about 10 degrees below that today with lots of sunshine. beautiful day, don't you agree, without the wind. you can really tolerate 49 degrees when you have all that sunshine heating things up. dulles 46. bwi thurgood marshall at 48 degrees. pretty chilly out there. we found winchester, martinsburg, down to 38 degrees. manassas, you get the spot for being the coolest spot around town. we do have some high thin clouds that are coming in. things might get a little thicker as we go into the overnight hours, so hopefully things won't be as cold. a little nice gathering in the deep south. this is going to make its way to the coast and probably sit down here and spin for the next couple of days but we are not
10:49pm
expecting that to get into our area. high pressure is going to block it out for the time being. here is what's going on at the surface. there is the high pressure that has been ruling the roost today, still keeping a north breeze here. that's why we are below normal. looks like that moisture will have a hard time getting closer than, say, very extreme southern virginia. we will see some clouds from that moisture tomorrow. while i don't think it will be any warmer than it was today, it probably won't be quite as sunny either. as we have some of these clouds to dodge. on friday shall high pressure kind of numbers back into control and it will be a brighter day. so expect more full sunshine. probably only 2 or 3 degrees rise in temperatures as the wind direction shifts just slightly. way below 3 it in some of the suburban areas and maybe staying in the upper 20s for a few of you despite the fact that we'll have some clouds. tomorrow, 49 degrees, mixture of sun and clouds. chilly with the winds out of
10:50pm
the now east at about 5 to 10 miles per hour. a cold start, colder in the suburbs. by noon, 46 with clouds and sun. by 4:00, that mix of sun and clouds will bring a temperatures of 47 degrees. you can see that out to our west, you may only recover to the mid-40s tomorrow. 46 for manassas, dulles, 48 culpeper. fredericksburg about 49 degrees. let's talk about the weekend because we have have another coastal system that will be down to the south. it will be a slow mover. but on saturday, while we have a mix of sun and clouds, i expect the clouds to thicken later in the day. because the coastal will be off our shores, it may be close enough to throw in some showers. the best chance for those showers and sunday will be from d.c. on east but we'll keep an eye on that system. 54 degrees on saturday with late day clouds. sunday, a little bit cloudier
10:51pm
and cooler. temperatures about 511 degrees. yes, the chance for a few showers. not looking like a huge deal. look at our future cast here quickly, we are in and out of the cloud to. but that moisture does not get here because it is blocked by high pressure. into the weekend, we find a secretary system trying to develop down here. this will be another coastal but it looks like it's going to be fairly east of d.c. and again that's just a chance for a few showers here and there. so let's wrap it up. fox 5 accu weather. we are still talking about temperature below average. 49 tomorrow. that's the coolest day. and about the warmest we're going to be abling to do here. maybe 54 degrees maybe next tuesday. right now looking towards travel day, wednesday, not looking too bad. just a few showers in the sunday, monday time frame but nothing that we can't handling. sound good. >> thanks. six new floats are available for this years' macy's pa rai.d among them the

10:53pm
for your opening. >> some shoppers are thrilled. >> i think it's a good thing because then you don't have to wake up at 3:00 in the morning and wait in line, in the freezing colds. >> but others think that's a terrible idea. >> i think that's a shame. i think there are some special days out of the year and i think that's one of them. >> reporter: many want to save the holiday as a time to spend with family. >> you want to go shopping on thanksgiving or have turkey? >> have turkey. >> reporter: an online pe test at change.org to take high road and safe things by not opening on that day. more than 170,000 people have already signed. one person calling the early opening a tad evil to make people work that holiday. but for many people wanting one of those door busterprizes -- it all seems worth it. >> that was fox's kim posey reporting. coming up on fox 5, a group of wounded warriors take a leap of faith less than a mile from
